When innocence meets ignorance – When a clock makes people go paranoid

Seriously !! What is going on in this world ?

A 14 year old boy uses all his knowledge and skills to build a clock to show his teacher expecting appreciation and gets arrested. This world never ceases to amaze me.

Did they seriously think if he made a bomb, he will show it to his teacher ? I have no words how silly and paranoid people have become post September 11.

I hope this young lad and many more inventors in the making are not afraid of showcasing their talent because of this one incident.

It must be very humiliating for this young boy to be interrogated in the manner he was just for an innocent invention.

This must be a very uncomfortable period for his parents too.

Sometimes, all it takes is an ignorant person’s silly act to make someone popular. Perhaps, we wouldn’t have known about this young talent without the existence of ignorant adults.

At the same time, I appreciate the gesture of Mark Zuckerberg and the President for offering their support.

Ahmed has a great future ahead.
